Abstract
We propose to achieve a high operating temperature midwave infrared focal plane array with a novel version of a InAs/GaSb superlattice photodiode. In Phase I, we will grow, fabricate, and measure test devices to determine the maximum temperature the sensor can operate at with reasonable performance when mated with a conventional readout multiplexer. In the Phase 1 Option, we will fabricate and test the performance of a 320x256 focal plane array (FPA). In Phase II, we will maximize operating temperature and pixel operability, package some FPAs in compact TE-cooled packages, and characterize camera performance. A sample camera will be delivered to the DOD.
